Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine

The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is interested in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lungs and respiratory system. Areas of expertise include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, cystic fibrosis, environmental and occupational lung disease, lung cancer, sleep medicine, and the treatment of critically ill adult patients. The Division's research labs, located at both the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Omaha VA Medical Center, are focused on research in airway inflammation injury and repair. The Division also has a very active Clinical Studies Unit involved in clinical trials for asthma, COPD, smoking cessation, and cystic fibrosis.
